Educational Standards and Grant-Maintained Schools: Perceptions of Headteachers and Chairs of Governors.
Anderson, Lesley; Bush, Tony
Educational Management & Administration, v27 n1 p17-27 Jan 1999

Now Labour plans to "reinvent" this sector via foundation and voluntary schools with reduced powers. A recent study found that headteachers believed grant-maintained status (and enhanced funding) helped raise standards. (21 references) (MLH)
